DAR awards students

On April 20 the LaGrange de LaFayette Chapter NSDAR honored county students during a luncheon held at Mt. Zion Lutheran Church in LaGrange. Good Citizen certificates and lapel pins were presented to Oscar Cruz, a senior at Lakeland High School, and Emily Ernsberger, a senior at Prairie Heights. The Westview winner, Kelsey Carmack, was unable to attend and will receive her award at a later date. Christine Slamkowski of The Howe School was awarded a JROTC medal. These students will also receive $100 at their respective school awards programs prior to graduation. The DAR members got to know these students and their families and heard about their scholastic achievements and future plans.
